 I was cruising through the website when I saw this:

Kipling Blazer
http://www.jpeterman.com/New-Owners-Manual-No-98/The-Kipling-Blazer
"The Kipling Blazer (No. 2594). We made this vintage British Military Blazer for you in Portugal. In a durable but comfortable, cotton canvas. Metal, silver oxide buttons. Rounded and pleated button-through flap pockets. Button-down shoulder epaulette. Center back vent. Pieced and folded cuffs."  Price: $329

Then I go to this: 



http://onlinemilitaria.com/shopexd.asp?id=4446&bc=no
"A new reproduction of the KD SD tunic worn by British and Commonwealth officers from 1900 to the 1960's. Made in 100% cotton and fitted with brass General Service buttons. It has brass belt hooks for wear with Sam Browne belt, and also includes a removable optional cloth belt." 
Price: $68 

I know too much.

But one has "Metal, silver oxide buttons" and one has Brass buttons. And the cheap one has a belt, and everyone know that Kipling hated belts. So, not authentic. *Totally* different thing...

(or not. :) )
